Family Weekend – January 27, 2019

This month’s Family Weekend Parent Workshop, welcomed Charlene Ward-Marr and Jack Marr, parents of two teens who have attended Ironwood in prior years. Charlene and Jack volunteered their weekend (and comprehensive Ironwood experience) to 40 sets of parents, who are in the various stages of our program. This 90-minute presentation offered guidance in the successful navigation though the family repair process. Doing this well involves the entire family and those most willing to carefully listen to one another and change counter-productive behaviors, typically find great success in reconnection, understanding, trust…and love. Charlene and Jack are right in saying that this work requires strength and thoughtful leadership. Learn more about Ironwood Maine:
